adidas has revealed the match ball for the 2018-19 Champions League and you'll notice it looks different than previous versions. That's because adidas went ahead and flipped it and reversed it. They inverted the color scheme by making the stars white and adding an innovative blue pattern to the rest of the ball.
According to adidas:
The new official match ball is designed to highlight the iconic UEFA Champions League stars. The white star panels contrast with a blue graphic print covering the rest of the ball, and the color is based on the official UEFA Champions League blue. The stars have a glossy finish, making them stand out even further against the matte finish of the blue hexagon panels. The graphic print is designed to represent the blur of constant motion, perfect for a ball that will be used in the fast-paced football of the UEFA Champions League.
The ball also features the latest adidas performance technology to ensure the best players in the world can perform at their highest level during the UEFA Champions League games. An outer texture coating - consistent across all adidas UEFA Champions League Official Match Balls – offers secure grip and complete control while the thermally bonded star panels provide a seamless surface for an improved first touch.
